ADF makes a lot more sense...they are known for making noise, whereas I've never heard of a betta making noises before...

And comparing it to other ADF noises on youtube, they seem similar.

Puck (Yellow koi HM king) / Scar (White HM) / Salt 'n Pepper (Silver HMPK) / 'That fish' (Copper butterfly HM) / No name (White DT) / No name 2 (Turquoise/white marble HM) / No name 3 (Lilac HM)

Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

It's 100% the frog NOT the fish, my cousins ADF do this ALL THE TIME because he has girls and boys in a tank. I believe that is the mating song males sing to females. It's normally very rare to catch it so you got lucky getting it but no this is 100% NOT the fish. I know this sound all too well, they kept me up at night when I was watching them and I also youtubed it. The frog all the way, it's the EXACT same sound. Take a look for yourself.

Firedrake and Genie made noises when I had them.
They mostly did it when I was about to feed them. It was a small clicking noise.
But yeah male dwarf frogs do make calls.
I always thought it was just because they were closing their mouths too hard though. I didn't know they intentionally made noise. I always though fish communicated via dancing or something (yeah I know that sounds really stupid but that's what I honestly thought)

All I know is that angel fish make a Brrrrr noise and some of the synodontis genus make squeaking sounds (hence the term squeaker).

That one is a little bit scary and unusual... I sleep by my bettas tank for around a month and I haven't heard anything though... If its the betta and not the frog, then he must be high in their hierarchy and the plan for world domination is underway...

Dedicated to a soul, i let go away ages ago:
